USMS Learn to Swim Instructor certification class

The USMS Adult Learn-to-Swim Instructor Certification Program curriculum is based on teaching methods practiced by leading adult learn-to-swim authorities. It incorporates the most innovative and effective training methods and gives certified instructors the tools to teach adults to swim, at a minimum, one length of a 25-yard pool and become safer in the water.

This one-day course, with classroom and in-water instruction, is taught throughout the country by USMS-certified instructor trainers. At the conclusion of the course, successful candidates will receive USMS ALTS instructor certification.

To become a USMS-certified ALTS Instructor, you must:

  • Be a member of USMS
  • Attend the USMS ALTS Instructor Certification Program course
  • Successfully complete the end-of-course tests

The cost for certification is $300 per instructor and includes both classroom and pool instruction, all course materials, and the USMS-Certified Adult Learn-to-Swim Instructor designation for the remainder of the calendar year in which certification was achieved.

If you are interested in taking this, we may have some scholarships available through the LMA.
